About Arline

Recently I moved back to New York City. Previously, I taught English classes including developmental English classes, grammar, reading skills, English 101, and ESL at Bellevue College in Bellevue, Washington. I also advised students in choosing their first quarter classes and tutored grammar, reading, writing, and pre-college math skills. Also, I tutored at two prominent tutoring agencies and learned useful teaching techniques which I currently practice. Moreover, I have also participated and led training sessions for adults for the Girl Scouts and the Red Cross.
Typically, I teach process writing beginning with the student's skills and breaking down the writing process to build on those skills. In this way, as the assignments become more difficult, the more skilled and confident the writer becomes. For this reason, I encourage the student to write more about less. This helps increase writing vocabulary and also helps the writer find his/her voice. Since in any writing, we learn more about the writer than the subject, it is important for the writer to control his writing. I teach the student to do just that. Better grades are the inherent byproduct.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT English

I have tutored all sections of the ACT in the past. Certainly, now is an especially good time to work on the ACT. As an added bonus, the grammar skills and test taking techniques that you learn will enhance the rest of your high school and college experiences.

ACT Reading

For years, I have worked with high school students to prepare them for their ACT. Although it is a lot of work for both of us, the result is rewarding.

English

in the recent past, I taught grammar skills, process writing, reading comprehension, and test taking skills.
These skills are applicable to studying any subject, including Social Studies and the sciences.

ESL/ESOL

I have experience teaching students for whom English is not their first language. Among the skills I taught were reading, writing, vocabulary, speaking, and comprehending in a variety of situations. I taught these skills to adults in a program at Arkansas State University and in the ESL and English programs at Bellevue College in Washington state.

Reading

I have taught reading skills to students at all grade levels, so I realize that these important skills and techniques can be learned at any age.

SAT Reading

I have helped prepare high school students to take the SAT exams for many years. The strategies and skills the students learn and practice preparing for the exam will be useful in college and in their eventual careers.

Writing

I have helped students brainstorm their ideas, organize their thoughts, and write complete sentences and fluid paragraphs.
I also work on handwriting so that the student will feel more comfortable working on writing assignments.

a pro like no other — Arline has been tutoring my 16 year old daughter for almost a year now and her patience and dedication to the job is humbling. Arline never loses her cool, never just "gives up" like I've seen other tutors do. She also laughs with my daughter and engages her in a way that is beautiful to listen to (from my place in an adjacent room). Nothing phases Arline, and she is a good natured and caring p ...
